|Trafford College Star Becomes Star Employee at the One Advice Group|
|Thursday, 30 March 2017|
As part of the One Advice Group’s commitment to engaging with and encouraging local talent, we support students on the Career Ready programme at Trafford College. One Advice Group assists through its role on the College’s Local Advisory Board (LAB), made up of supporters from local businesses, lecturers and the Career Ready network. Last year, the Marketing department provided a month-long work experience placement for star pupil Brittany Peacock.
Introduction to working-life
Brittany was provided with the opportunity to understand working life and business structures during her time with the Marketing department. This assisted on her pathway to employment. During this time, Brittany also avidly took on important tasks such as helping to co-ordinate communications at our inaugural Creditor Conference and welcoming visitors; on hand to facilitate guests requirements which lead to the smooth running of the day.
Brittany commented: “This was a great opportunity to develop my understanding of a working environment. The One Advice Group helped me to develop my organisation and project management skills in this role. I believe that work experience and volunteering are valuable and essential to becoming employable.”
Aspirations after College
After graduating from Trafford College, Brittany decided to return to the One Advice Group to further progress her career. She started with the Front of House Team and then developed on to Customer Services. Brittany continues to develop with the business, and has recently become a representative on Culture Club, the colleague elected committee. Culture Club are responsible for colleague engagement. They co-ordinate fun activities, events and support the Group’s charitable and philanthropic endeavours. This year with the start-up of the One Advice Group Fund, supported by Forever Manchester, we are set to have a bumper year of Give and Gain initiatives.
Brittany will support the Marketing department once again at this year's Creditor Connect Conference. The theme of this year is Dimensions of Debt, which includes a broad range of topics and speakers relating to the finance industry. The event will be taking place on the 30th of March.
Recently, Brittany has been invited to the House of Commons to attend the ‘Celebration of Student Success Reception’. These awards were introduced to highlight exceptional achievement in higher educational establishments. Brittany was highly commended in the 16-18 category for her contribution to the Enterprise Scheme. On the course, Brittany led her team to victory at the Start-Up Company of the Year awards and was crowned the North West Student of the Year 2016. She was nominated by her teacher and the Principal of the College.
She was accompanied by Mike Kane, MP for Wythenshawe and Sale East who is also Shadow Education Minister, Trafford College Tutor Pierina Bower, Director of Learning for General Education Helen Wood and her proud family members.
We look forward to seeing where Brittany’s future takes her. We’re sure that her career pathway will be one to follow.
